We see a decent number of people who’s digestive issues began during foreign travel…
If you’re traveling, I recommend you put together a traveling first aid kit.
But let’s say you get caught without your probiotics on a trip and come down with traveler’s tummy, here are some recommendations with things that should be reasonably available with a trip to a market.
While some people recommend going straight to antibiotics I do not, assuming you are healthy and the diarrhea isn’t too severe. Natural methods work just fine the majority of the time, and let us save antibiotics for use when the situation requires them.
First and foremost, don’t stop the diarrhea – it’s a protective mechanism. If you’ve picked up a bug and you stop diarrhea, you stop your body from flushing it out, and it could make you much sicker! No one likes diarrhea, but in this instance it’s a good thing.
Please note: If you have blood in your stool or are experiencing severe diarrhea, or become very dehydrated, seek medical attention. Diarrhea is usually not a serious thing, but can be life-threatening in the wrong situation.
The most important thing with diarrhea is to remain hydrated, as dehydration is the most dangerous thing about diarrhea.
Plain water, assuming it is clean – when in doubt boil or use other means to sterilize – is fine if the diarrhea is mild. But if it is more significant purchase or make your own oral rehydration solution (ORS).
The recipe is:
Sip water or ORS throughout the day and make a special effort to consume some after every bowel movement.
I recommend staying away from heavy (fatty or protein rich) and spicy foods. Fast if you’re not hungry or consider the following:
Your secret weapon which you should be able to get at a market. Try to get the best quality you can, but in a pinch, get whatever you can.
If you’re in a place where parasites are a real possibility, consider getting screened for parasites when you get home.
